    The Uhuru Quilters Guild, a group of 80 predominantly African American quilters who meet monthly to share work, challenge skills, and inspire future projects, has a mission to promote the work and accomplishments of African American quilters and preserve the traditions, culture, and history of quilting. This exhibition will include a collection of masterful quilts, varying in size, technique, and imagery, inviting the audience to the power of functional art.
    Included in the opening reception of this exhibition will be a live performance from artist Liz Ann Miller titled Rituals for Cleansing Racial Violence, a fascinating visual experience celebrating the importance of hair as it relates to African American culture.
